Microbiology Professor's Murder Headed for Review
COLUMBIA (AP) - University of Missouri police are seeking outside help in the 2005 murder of a microbiology professor.
The case of Jeong Im is headed to a multistate law enforcement organization in Springfield for review.
The 72-year-old researcher was stabbed to death in January 2005 before his body was stuffed into the trunk of his car, which was then set on fire in a campus parking garage.
University police Chief Jack Watring says the Mid-States Organized Crime Information Center is one of six regional centers that help local police agencies solve major crimes.
Saturday is the seventh anniversary of Im's death. He was a semiretired protein chemist who immigrated to the United States from Korea as a young adult.
